關於街頭浪子的傳奇一生。1986年,導演Tarma Davis拍攝了一段關於他朋友尚米榭‧巴斯奇亞的訪談。幾年之後,巴斯奇亞成為了20世紀最重要的藝術家之一。這段僅存關於他的影像紀錄,直到了20年後才問世。 巴斯奇亞出生於60年代紐約,高中輟學專於街頭創作,年僅28歲便吸毒過量致死。作品受到爵士bepop的影響,在極簡與概念藝術當道的80年代,展現出新表現主義風格蔚為一新,卻因身為黑人,一生受到許多誤解與種族歧視。導演勞勃馬歇爾曾替巴斯奇亞下過這樣的註解:「他因藝術而成名、因成名而聲名大噪、因聲名大噪成眾矢之的。」紐約時報評論此片忠實呈現80年代早期紐約的生猛原味,以及對於這位天才藝術家觸人心弦的見證。

Jean-Michel Basquiat was one of the biggest and brightest art stars of the 1980s. He started out writing strange graffiti in New York’s Soho arts district, and within two years of his first attempt at painting in 1981, he’d become an art world celebrity hanging out with Andy Warhol at The Factory and dripping paint all over his Armani suits. Both Warhol and Basquiat are featured in rare archival footage, while new interviews come from the titans of the New York art world today: Julian Schnabel, Larry Gagosian, Tony Shafrazi, Jeffrey Deitch and others. Rapper Fab 5 Freddy also chimes in about Basquiat’s ties to hip hop culture. Basquiat, however, would not survive the 80s. Killed by fame and heroin, he was perhaps art’s greatest rock star in a decade when the sky was the limit.
